K'nex Review and Giveaway


One of our favorite things to do as a family is build with blocks. Our kids spend countless hours having contests with each other seeing who can build the biggest and best things, and that's why we love K'nex.  Our family loves K'nex and when it comes time for Christmas and Birthdays, K'nex is always at the top of our list!  We were thrilled to review some of K'nex newest products and share them with our readers!

Some of the bigger sets of K'nex are more difficult for our 5 year old so I was really excited to see that they now have a Sesame Street line for children aged 2-5! 



Kick-It! Elmo:
Your child can build Sesame Street's coolest red monster, Elmo, gearing up to kick his soccer ball! This 13 piece set includes parts to build Elmo in his uniform and ready to hit the field with his soccer ball. "Play & Learn" activity sheet filled with collaborative and educational fun for parent and child is also included along with additional building ideas. When playtime is over store the parts in the handy canister for a quick and easy clean-up

Swim Time Ernie:
Your child can build Sesame Street's friendliest resident, Ernie, dressed in his bathing suit and ready to take a swim! This 14 piece set includes parts to build Ernie, complete with snorkel and flippers, on his way to the pool, lake or beach! "Play & Learn" activity sheet filled with collaborative and educational fun for parent and child is also included along with additional building ideas. When playtime is over store the parts in the handy canister for a quick and easy clean-up

Cookie Monster’s Basketball:
Your child can build one of Sesame Street's most loveable - and hungriest - characters, Cookie Monster, getting some exercise by hitting the basketball court! This 15 piece set includes parts to build Cookie Monster dressed in his uniform, including his yellow visor, with basketball in hand. "Play & Learn" activity sheet filled with collaborative and educational fun for parent and child is also included along with additional building ideas. When playtime is over store the parts in the handy canister for a quick and easy clean-up.

Josh took Ernie swimming with him after he put him together!



K'nex also has some great new sets for older children!



Fire Rescue 10 Model Set:
Build 10 different models, including a cool fire engine, and bring them to life with the spring motor! Packed with 127 parts plus step-by-step instructions and building ideas for 10 unique models. The convenient storage box is a great place to store your parts and makes it easy for you to take the fun with you. For ages 5+.

Micro-Bots:
Collect & Build K’NEX Micro-Bots Series - motorized for exciting mechanical movement! This set comes with tons of K'NEX parts, primarily micro rods & connectors to build a motorized robot, get the whole Micro-Bots series and combine them! Recommended for builders ages 7+. Requires 2 "AA" batteries, not included





Collect & Build Construction Crew Series:
Collect & Build the Construction Crew Series! Each set comes with K'NEX parts, including bricks, rods and connectors to build an exciting construction vehicle. There is also a K'NEXman to operate the vehicle, and construction accessories to play with! You can build on the brick plate that is included in the set, then combine all four sets and the brick plates become your own actual construction site! Recommended for builders ages 5+.



 

350 Piece K’NEX Value Tub:
Packed with 350 parts for lots of open-ended and endless building opportunities and after building play! Includes instructions and ideas for 20 models or use your imagination to dream up your own creations. The convenient and sturdy storage tub means there is always a place to store your parts and partially built models or take the fun with you wherever you go! For ages 7+.






My 8 year old is so creative!  This is why we love K'nex. The kids are able to build things on their own and they really feel proud of them when they are finished! Out of the tub, our son made an airplane, car, dinosaur, camera and a bicycle!


K'nex is a great way to get the family together for inexpensive fun!  K'nex make great gifts and we here at the CrAzY HoUsE thinks every house needs a set (or 10!!).
